  9. BILL Revenue: $37.2B Owners:Bechtel Family &amp; Internally Elected Employees President:Brendan Bechtel (5th generation to lead company) CEOBill Dudley HQ:San Francisco, CA 2014 Rank:#1 (for the last 17 consecutive years) / #3 International Contractors Warren Bechtel founded the company in 1898 to construct railroads with his team of mules. Bechtel completed work on a series of railroad contracts during the early 1900s. Bechtel ventured outside of railroad construction in 1919, when the company started to build roads, bridges, and highways throughout the western US. Bechtel worked on its first power project (hydroelectric) and pipeline project in the 1920s. In 1931, Bechtel joined six other companies for form a consortium to construct the Hoover Dam. Warren died suddenly in Moscow in 1933; his son Stephen took over. Bechtel built 540 vessels for the Federal government during WWII. Bechtel’s first international project was in Venezuela in 1940. In 1947 Bechtel began construction of the world’s largest pipeline which started in Saudi Arabia and ran across Jordan, Syria and ended in Lebanon. From this point forward, Bechtel managed a tremendous amount of work in the Middle East. In 1949, Bechtel entered the nuclear power business when it built the Experimental Breeder Reactor in Idaho. Bechtel constructed the first commercial nuclear power plant for Commonwealth Edison in Illinois in 1957. Bechtel started work on the BART system in 1959. In 1960, Stephen Bechtel Jr. took over for his father as president of the company. During the 1960s and 1970s, Bechtel was involved in constructing 40 percent of the nuclear plants in the United States. By the end of the 1970s, Bechtel moved from nuclear power construction to nuclear cleanup (Three Mile Island in ‘79). They also focused on mega transportation projects (DC Metro, etc.). In the early ‘80s they handled the project management of construction projects related to the LA Summer Olympics (’84). In ’87, Bechtel handled the project management of the undersea tunnel that links the UK and France. During the recession of the ‘80s the company turned its focus to environmental cleanup and alternative energy projects. In ’89 Riley Bechtel was named president of the company. In ’91, the US retained Bechtel to extinguish the oil well fires in Kuwait. In the 90s Bechtel built: the Hong Kong Airport, the Athens Metro System, an extension of the London Underground, facilities for the ’92 Barcelona Olympics, and facilities for the ’98 winter Olympics in Japan (Nagano). Between 2000 and 2010, Bechtel completed work for the ’02 Olympics in Salt Lake and completed (with others) the $4.3 billion power project in China (petrochemical). CONTROVERSY: In ’91, Bechtel JV-ed with Parsons Brinkerhoff to construct the Big Dig – the largest and most complex urban transportation project ever undertaken in the US. Due to massive overruns and construction issues (leaks and the collapse of the tunnel ceiling panel), Bechtel received bad press. Bechtel settled litigation with federal and state officials for $352M in ’08. CONTROVERSY: Between ’01 and ’13, Bechtel worked on the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant at the Hanford site in Washington state (treatment for radioactive waste)(considered to be one of the most complex projects in the country at the time). Certain federal agencies criticized Bechtel for rising costs, nuclear safety and quality, and whistleblower allegations. CONTROVERSY: In ’03, Bechtel won a $680 million contract to rebuilt infrastructure in Iraq. The contract led to the company being accused of both non-competitive bidding and war profiteering. Bechtel won a number of competitively bid contracts in Iraq thereafter. CONTROVERSY: Following Hurricane Katrina in ’05, Bechtel was one of four companies hired by FEMA to build temporary housing. Certain federal officials and the media criticized Bechtel for the cost and quality of work. Bechtel Divisions: Infrastructure (transportation, fossil &amp; renewable power, transmission, communications. Mining &amp; Metals (mining &amp; production of materials) Oil, Gas &amp; Chemicals (liquefied natural gas, oil, pipeline, petrochemicals, and natural gas facilities) Nuclear, Security, &amp; Environmental (handles company’s government work and commercial nuclear businesses) Bechtel-government links: Riley P. Bechtel served on W. Bush’s Export Council VP Jack Sheehan served on the Pentagon&amp;apos;s Defense Policy Board George Schultz, a Bechtel employee in the ‘70s, served as Secretary of State under Reagan. Caspar Weinburger, Bechtel’s former general counsel, served as Reagan’s Secretary of Defense. W. Kenneth Davis, Bechtel’s former VP, served as Reagan’s deputy secretary of Energy and head of the Atomic Energy Commission. William Casey, a former Bechtel consultant, served as the chairman of the SEC under Nixon, head of the Export-Import bank under Ford, and director of the CIA under Reagan. Ross Connelly, former CEO of Bechtel Energy Resources Corporation, was appointed by George Bush in June of 2001 to the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. Stew Burkhammer, a current Bechtel executive, is presently a member of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health. TAKEAWAYS: Bechtel adjusts in accordance with federal spending, on a domestic and international basis. Bechtel established a stronghold in the Power sector in the ‘50s and has held on to it for the last 60 years. Bechtel leadership has been very consistent – 5 generations of Bechtels have led the company and they have remained very low key while maintaining a network of political connections. Bechtel has exploited international work like no other US contractor.
